ROTTERDAM, Netherlands (AFP) – An art forger who sold a fake to Nazi air force chief Hermann Goering is finally getting the recognition that eluded him in life — from a museum he famously conned out of a small fortune seven decades ago.The Boijmans van Beuningen museum in the Dutch port city of Rotterdam has swallowed its wounded pride to host an exhibition focusing on the tricks and tools of Han van Meegeren, one of history’s most successful art forgers. One of his greatest achievements came in 1937 when he persuaded the museum to part with 540,000 guilders, about 4.5 million euros (5.6 million dollars) today, for what it believed was a previously unknown work by the 17th-century Dutch master Johannes Vermeer.” It is ironic, I guess, but art is ambiguous,” curator Friso Lammertse told AFP of the exhibition, which runs until August 12.
